Setup Skip Logic

TalentMap allows you to customize your survey for each respondent. This will save your respondents from survey fatigue and improve your data quality.

Logic can be applied to answer options, questions, pages, and actions. Skip logic can be used to:

skip respondents to a later page in the survey
skip respondents to an earlier page in the survey
disqualify respondents
redirect respondents to an external website
flag the response as complete


To add Page Logic, including page jumps, click Skip/Disqualify Logic below the page. Use the Describe Your Logic field to give your logic a title/name.

Using the logic builder, set up the Logic Conditions.

a. First, select a question from the current page or a previous page that will be used in the IF part of the rule. In the case of a grid question, you will choose a specific row of the grid to use.

b. Select the operator that will be used to evaluate the question. After you select your question, the system will apply the recommended operator for the question type you selected. For example, if the question you selected has preset answers, such as a Radio Button question, it will switch to the operator "**is one of the following answers**" along with a list of the possible answers from your selected question:

c. Finally enter the value or values that are required to complete the rule.

Next select what you would like to do if the logic passes. You can select to send a respondent to a specified Survey Page (either later or earlier in the survey) or to an External URL. You can also select to mark the response as complete.

Make sure to Save Action when you are finished.

Passing URL Variables to an External URL

If you choose to send a survey respondent to an External URL (most often used when an organization invites a respondent to a rewards draw), you can also pass along URL variables.

After selecting External URL, enter the URL you wish to send the respondent to.
Next, scroll to the Fields To Pass and begin by selecting a field in the Question to Send Dropdown.
Click Add Field and enter the Variable Name you wish to send as part of the URL. Enter a Default Value if you wish. Click Save Action when you are finished setting up your fields to pass.


Skip/Disqualify Logic is tied to the survey page that immediately precedes it. This means that that page must be rendered in order for the skip logic to execute. Due to this, we strongly recommend keeping this limitation in mind when adding Page Logic to this preceding page (or avoiding using page logic on that page).
